With many thanks to Mike Hater Of Mainland Ukes, this is a work in progress database of worldwide ukulele acts available for bookings. The intention is to create a list of performers to assist events who are looking to book acts.
If you a free listing, just get in touch with your details in the same format below, keeping your description to a short tag line of 1 line (2 maximum). Hopefully this will grow and grow! Please note - this is for bookable pro or semi pro acts and not for clubs or gatherings that may play gigs at festivals and shows. Club performers have their own ukulele clubs page for that.
